Michael Meow Love this EP. Its metal but its different to anything I heard. Vocalist sounds like Phil Anselmo on a good day. Recommended Favorite track: Into the Blackness.

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The long awaited, and much anticipated debut EP from west country titans Black Forge.

    Recorded in its full glory, 'I am the Dark' is a 6.40 minute metal roller-coaster that chugs you along, brings you down, scares the sh*t out of you and then thrashes you right out to the final chorus. Partnered with sludgy-groover ‘Into the Blackness’ and the melodic-aggressive ‘My Ghosts’ you have a bludgeoning, full-bodied experience. However there is one more treat on this EP, which is the acoustic version (yes acoustic version) of ‘I am the Dark’. This is by no means a ‘filler’ track. On the contrary, this track confirms the brilliance of the song writing as a full-on beast of a song is transformed into a haunting lullaby.

    Just under 26 minutes of music in total on an awesome colour digipak with pictures and artwork a-plenty.

Track Name: I am the Dark
I AM THE DARK – BLACK FORGE ©

Sweet dreams!
I bid you a frightful night
I pray the sandman comes…. with a fistful of grit
Planting seeds of terror to strangle your dreams in your sleep
Planting seeds of terror to strangle your dreams in your sleep

Sweet dreams!
I’m watching you drift away
Loom in the night…. with vice-like grip
As thoughts of love and affection turn to train-wrecks & decapitation
As thoughts of love and affection turn to train-wrecks & decapitation

CHORUS
I am your black toothed grin
The ghoul in your closet, the Brothers Grimm
I am the beast at the foot of your bed
I AM THE DARK

Sweet dreams!
Under my nocturnal clutch
My nightmare consumes…. your unbroken mind
Blackened nails of the macabre claw your back, steel crimson shimmer
Blackened nails of the macabre claw your back, steel crimson shimmer

Bleed from within as I carve out your sin
Bleed from within as I carve out your sin
Bleed from within as I carve out your sin
Bleed from within as I carve out your sin
Track Name: Into the Blackness
INTO THE BLACKNESS – BLACK FORGE ©

Lay me down in smoke
Still my breath becomes
Circle of crows overhead
Same in life as in death

DISGRACED

Fix my eyes in a stare
Cross my arms as in prayer
My body and mind is all that I leave behind
Fuck this world and all of its kind

DISPLACED

CHORUS
Laid out and down, I’m headed south
I choke on these words that I spit from mouth
Feign your concern, you won’t steal your eyes away
I’ve got nothing to say to you
I won’t waste my final breath
Middle finger outstretched I fall into the blackness (Blackness)
Into the blackness (Blackness)

Darkness shrouding me
Fucked for all to see
Holding back my disdain my lips crack a dry smile
I never cared at all

EMBRACED
Track Name: My Ghosts
MY GHOSTS © - BLACK FORGE

I am bleeding out before you
I am pouring out myself
I am only fucking human
Only a fucking man

Keep kicking me when I’m down
Pouring salt into my wounds
But you won’t break my resolve
You won’t deny me this

CHORUS
Hung again for my mistakes, the ones I faced and admitted to you
I know my faults more than anyone in the world
I see, I feel I live with my past
I won’t let you soil me anymore
Crawl back, and leave me with MY GHOSTS

Don’t turn away while I’m talking to you
You’re still as much a part of this as me
Before piss on me one last time
Walk a mile in my shoes

I gave you everything
Gave everything in between
One day you’ll realise
The grass is never that fucking green

I am bleeding out before you
I am pouring out myself
I am only fucking human
Only a fucking man
